Stuck with millions of the games, Atari opted to bury them. Unfortunately, nostalgic video game hunters who visit the landfill in search of a souvenir will be sorely disappointed. The company had the landfill owners crush the cartridges with a steamroller, and the whole pile was paved over with concrete

If you had played E.T. on Atari you wouldn't think it's excessive. You would think it's the bare minimum.
